Paper Abstract

We explore the physics of nonequilibrium electron transport in semiconductors with the aim of using this knowledge to develop new, ultrafast electronic and optoelectronic devices. In this paper a theory describing hot electron transport in n- and p-type semiconductors is discussed and operation of an n-type unipolar transistor with a 100Å wide base and current gain, β greater than 15 is demonstrated.
